If we had been the shepherds one night long ago,
I wonder if wed recognize the star or if wed know
the reason for His birth and if wed really go
to worship at the manger. I wonder, would we know'
Is it really any different than if Jesus came today'
I wonder, would we recognize His face in any way'
Or would we turn away from Him
not knowing what to say'
If Jesus walked among us in our hurried, busy pace,
I wonder if this stranger would really find a place'
